Abstract

We report on a female patient suffering from tuberculosis cutis colliquativa. The skin lesions were caused by hematogenic dissemination of mycobacteria tuberculosis spreading from the affected urogenital tract. The diagnosis was confirmed by culturing. Combined treatment with tuberculostatic agents for 5 months resulted in complete remission of the tuberculosis.
